Hi, hoping someone can help.
I'm mainly a web designer but am having to create some exhibition / large scale artwork which I've never done before.
Anyhow, I've got myself in a bit of a pickle with my InDesign artwork - i'm working on some roller banners and a 3D popup exhibition display. I've been told to provide the artowrk at 50% the final size.
However - and this is where I've convinced myself I'm doing it wrong - if the artwork is 50% size, and I've been told to add a 5mm bleed to the top, right and left sides but a 125mm bleed to the bottom, I don't halve these as well, do I?
No. Use their bleed measurements when you set up the document at whatever the 50% size is. So if the document is to be 8 foot long and you make the 50% 4 foot long, add the 5mm bleed to the L/R/T edges and the 125 mm to the bottom edge of the 4 foot long document.
